Both this Scots name and its Irish source referred to the fjords and lakes of the Norsemen's Scandinavian homeland. As a result, ''Viking'' is sometimes given as their literal meaning.
Also, some authorities prefer to derive the Scots form of the name from the Gaelic term loachail, meaning ''bellicose.''
